Today I would like to share this poem penned by my cousin John. I feel his pain, but it still makes me smile.
My computer had “probs” which caused me some sobs
I do feel abashed! The darn thing it crashed
It wouldn’t even start so no chance of restore
Definitely didn’t work since it hit the floor
Seems it had taken a really hard hit
Huh! Certainly did when I rebooted it!
I had to admit it was definitely bust
And having it repaired was an absolute must
So I sent it off in hope it could be fixed
Yet my emotions, strangely, were really quite mixed
Felt like a friend had just passed away
What could I do to fill up my day?
What occupation could I possibly seek?
To fill up my days for over a week?
I got really bored and moped round the house
Hugging the keyboard and fondling the mouse
(It was all my fault I felt such a louse!)
Then at last the phone call that said it was ready
Oh! the excitement, ’twas really quite heady
Hey! Now it is back on my desk and I’m fit to bust
Do you know those wizards even removed all the dust!

I so know how that feels! Have you ever been in the same situation?

The highly commended prize went to the ever lovely Willie. Willie doesn't have a blog (as far as I know) so I can’t share a link, but I can share this clever little ditty he sent over the other day. My mistake – Willie does have a blog, and you will find it here.
Is this clever....or what!
I halve a spelling chequer,
it came with my pea sea,
it plainly marques four my revue,
miss steaks eye kin knot sea.
Eye strike a quay and type a word,
and weight four it two say,
weather eye am wrong oar write,
it shows me strait a weigh.
As soon as a mist ache is maid,
it nose bee fore two long,
and eye can put the error rite,
it’s rare lea ever wrong.
Eye have run this poem threw it,
l am shore your pleased to no,
it’s letter perfect awl the weigh,
my chequer tolled me sew.

I was wondering what to do with all the empty shelf space now that March House Books is closed, but then I found these great little boxes at H&M.
The only problem with lots of boxes is remembering what’s in them but these free printable tags, solved the problem.
I've still got a little sorting to do, but I think you will agree this looks better than empty shelves,
and I still have lots of books so all is well in my world. I hope all is well in your world.
